Hydrotherapy is also a fantastic way of building muscle and cardiovascular fitness without stressing the joints. It also helps manage weight and improve blood circulation to the heart. Swimming is not only a great exercise for people, it works for dogs too. Even dogs who aren’t naturally ‘water dogs’ will enjoy the benefit hydrotherapy brings. If you are lucky enough to live near Quincys Hydrotherapy pool in Hertfordshire then we recommend 2 sessions a week to help your dog become stronger, happier and more mobile again.
